FIVE Colonial Exposition Held by France Has Interest to Visitors MARSEILLES, June 6 (Associat ed Press Mall) France's colonial ex position Is proving a great attraction to visitors, especially to Americans. The party of prominent American bankers which recently came to Mar seilles was particularly interested In the great exhibit from French Indo china, the near neighbor of the Phi lippines and a territory so rich and extensive that it plays a great part in Pacific problems. French Indo-China has a population of 17,000.000 as against 7,600.000 in the Philippines, and its area is about 259,000 square miles, or 144,000 square miles more than the Philippines. French Indo-China is 87,000 square miles larger than all the Japanese Is lands and has only one-fourth the population. The chief building-of the French Indo-China exhibit is a reproduction of the fantastic Temple of Angkor, In Cambodia. This mammoth temple with Its fine fretted towers and mag nificent approaches, protected by ani mals, is the most striking feature of the exposition. In fact it is doubtful whether any exposition ever offered a more impressive and unique building. The temple stands in a secluded spot, with much open space about it. It Is reproduced in concrete and plaster made in excellent Imitation of marble. Pagodas in the same style of architec ture flank the main entrance and are surrounded by lagoons. No detail of a Buddhist temple has been omitted in developing the exterior. Within are exhibits of Indo-Chinese products. Cotton, rice, rubber, coal, hemp, timber, wool and various other raw materials yielded by Tonkins, Cambodia, Cochin-China and Annam are shown, together with paintings, photographs and cinema pictures illus trating the scenery and varied indus tries.. Marseilles calls Itself the colonial capita' of the French empire. Ships from this port radiate to every import ant seaport in colonial France, which Is second only in extent and wealth to colonial England, and upon which Mar seilles boasts the sun never sets. In 1906 the first colonial exposition was hold in Marseilles. This was to be a decennial event, but the war pre vented holding another till this year. Thirty-six hectares of beautifully wooded park are devoted to the exposi tion. Tunis, Algeria, Morocco, Madag ascar, French West Africa. Equatorial Africa and the Flench West Indies all have buildings, many of which are of unusual charm. Marseilles itself is a congress of na tions. In normal times colonials of varying shades, from the light yellow of the Mongolian to the ebony black of the Renegelese, are to be seen in the streets. But. the exposition has attracted large crowds of distinguish ed colonials whose bright costumes make the avenues and buildings of the exposition even more fascinating than the Interesting exhibits In addition to the display of colonial resources there are also art, machin ery, automobile nnd commerce hails ns well as various government build ings and a street devoted wholly to amusements. The exposition will con tinue till November. ed.

New York Seeks tc Better Reputation NEW YORK, June 28 (Associated Press Mail) New York, the second largest city in the world some claim It is the largest is going back to the favorite boom method of the small town. It is going to appoint a "Wel come Stranger Committee," figurative ly to extend to the visitors the keys of the city. This action was decided upon after the New York Hotel Asso ciation set forth that folks in other parts of the country had got an en tirely wrong Idea of the city from what they had read about it In the newspapers. The job of the new committee is to make it known that, despite the accounts of murders, suicides, holdups and scandals that have been featured In the news, New York is just as safe as any Gopher Prairie with better water, milk and police protection to boot. New York is particularly anxious to get this idea across immediately, for it is in the summer that honeymoon ers flock to the city from the ends of the land. And the hotel men feel that these visiting couples, perched atop buses touring the city, are somewhat neglect- MYSTIC PANTOMIME This old fashioned game is always good for an hour's amusement in doors or out. The leader provides as many slips as there are players and writes a phrase on each the name of a historical character, of pome one living or of one of the players present; or of a trade, profes sion, etc.; or the name of some ac tivity such as playing golf, baking bread, shopping, etc. The papers are folded and passed around to the players, together with unwritten slips for the recording of their guesses. Supposing Player No. 1, after look ing secretly at the slip passed to him finds written there "Baking Grid dle Cakes." He stands up, pretends to tie an apron around him, pours Imaginary Hour into an imaginary bowl, adds salt, baking powder, milk, etc., and stirs the batter vigorously, then makes believe to light a gas range, place the griddle and proceed to make "flapjacks." When he finishes his stunt, the other players record their guesses, and Player No. 2 stands up to do his stunt, which may be "The Man of Destiny," easily guessed when the impersonator takes the familiar pose of Napoleon with I chin down hat over the brows and I the left hand thrust beneath the I buttoned coat. Other suggestions for Mystic Pan ! tomime: The Champion, 4he Motor I man, Deep-Sea Fishing, the Flapper, I the Freshman, Grandfather Dancing, J Land, Ho!, the Clumsy Waiter, the Peddler, etc. The player who guess es the greatest number of the Pan tomimes wins the game CHAPTER I Seeding Wild Indian JANET'S father had told her find Jack stories about the wild In dians who once lived in the ereat woods. One of his stories had 'been about the strange magic work ed by the medicine men. When he had finished Jack and Ja net sat before the fire and talked Stories over. "I wonder if there are still any wild Indians in the woods," whisper ed Janet. . "There are lots of tame ones who wear clothes like other folks," said Jack. "I wouldn't be surprised If away off in the wild places in the woods there are wild Indians who are1 just as wild as the deer and the wolves." "I would like to see a really, truly Wild Indian." whispered Janet, shiver ing a bit at the thought. "Let's go out into the woods first thing in the morning and hunt 1 through the wild places," suggested Jack, also whispering. "Perhaps we will find Indians as wild as in the old days." That seemed a good Idea to Janet, although she told herself she didn't want to find any scalping or toma hawking Indians. I MAUI TWENTY YEARS AGO (From Maul News of July 12, 1902) J.

WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTORS Jack ran out and tapped on Janet's window with a long stick "I'll call you as soon as I wake up In the morning," promised Jack, as he started for home. "Get up when I tap on your window pane." Jack was much excited over the thought of going out into the woods to look for wild Indians, and was busily making plans when he dropped off to sleep. He was awakened by a light shining upon his eyes. "It is morning," said Jack to him self. "The sun ia shining through my window." Jack hopped out of b.-d and began to dress quickly. If he had stopped to think he would have known it couldn't be the sun shining through the window, for the window faced the West, where the sun went to bed. Jack ran out and tapped on Janet's window with a long stick. Janet oop pd out of bed and in a few minutes joined him, warmly clad in cap and coat. "How pale the sun is this morn ing," said Jack, as he saddled the ponies, Trixio and Topsy. Janet looked at the sky, and then she gave a surprised gigle. "Why that isn't the sun at all," she said. "It is the moon." Jack scarcely knew what to say to that. He felt rather foolish. "Well, It must be nearly morning," he said. "We will get an early start in our search for wild Indians." So they mounted the ponies, and away they rode at a gallop. They rode far through the snowy woods, and at last they came to a very wild looking place, where the trees and the trees and the bushes grew in a great tangle. "This looks wild enough to be the home of wild Indians," said Jack. He led the way among the trees, riding slowly and softly. After him came Janet, nervous nnd alert. The tangle or trees grew darker. Suddenly Jack stopped Trixie. He pointed ahead. In front of them was a queer house In the woods, a house made of bark. Through the chinks in the bark shone flickering rays .of light. "That looks like an Indian house," whispered Jack to Janet. "Lets peek in." He slipped off Trixie's back, and helped Janet down from Topsy. Leaving the ponies standing qulet ly.the children crept toward the queer house of bark. AILE BUTTER 55 CENTS A POUND You'll enjoy its fresh and delicious flavor.
